    Just a thought, might they try to restrict reloading as part of this legislation. It hasn't really entered the debate yet, perhaps because none of these folks reloaded?
    If they make buying ammo online difficult, might it spill over?

    most anti-gun people have no idea what reloading is....heck, most gun owners arent even aware of reloading.......

    nor is it really worth the time and effort to try and pass a law that will effect such a small amount of gun owners.

    for the moment, ide say reloading should be safe.

    far more likely to turn an average gun owner against them by restricting handloading than by restricting black rifles. "Common Sense" restrictions aren't allowed to affect the majority.

    It wont be in the upcoming batch of proposals.

    Fella's;

    But if you don't think it won't be in the future, I have some prime coastal bottom land you may be interested in as a premium investment.

    They will try to divide us. Sooner or later they will discover that somebody who committed a crime bought " 8 pounds of explosive gunpowder, and 4 thousand high explosive primers" and will impose limits on component sales. Their goal is to stop all reloading because they can't control it.

    anything to make money that they can tax and control it seems.

    The U.N. treaty addresses ammunition manufacturing, but I don't know what extent. Yes, sooner or later someone will get creative.

    If they are able to restrict ammo sales, they will also include reloading components, unfortunately.
    If you haven't already, please contact your congressmen, expressing your objection to gun control and donate whatever you can to the NRA.

    A few years ago when there was alot of talk about guns serializing the ammunition fired in them, there was talk of limiting or eliminating reloading components.

    The idea was that ammunition used in a crime could be traced back to the gun.

    I do not remember any more details but do not think it cannot happen.

    Fortunately, the gun technology is not there--yet.

    Microstamping legislation is sponsored by the folks who own the patents on the technology.

    If someone can show prior art, the patents are void and the push to require it will go away.

    I don't think it is an issue now, but I certainly think it will be in the future.
